Harrison Endycott has been the most consistent golfer by far this week at the PGA Tour Q-School Final Stage at Dye's Valley Course and Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. After the 72 holes are completed, the top five golfers and ties will earn their PGA Tour cards for the 2023-24 season.
There is impending inclement weather in the forecast for the final round. The PGA Tour has said they will play 72 holes no matter what so that all golfers play both courses twice, and if necessary, they will pivot to a Monday finish.
Endycott shot a 5-under 65 at Sawgrass Country Club, totaling 12-under for the tournament and taking a two-shot lead into Sunday's final round. Endycott has shot rounds of 65-68-65 and has held a share of the lead after every round so far.
“I feel really free. Putter feels great. I’m just kind of in a good head space this week,” Endycott told Adam Schupak of Golfweek. “I’ve got a two-shot lead in a regular golf tournament and trying to close it out. There’s a lot of good players this week. I’ve still got to go and play well. I can’t go and shoot nothing and expect to win. It’s one of those ones where I’m still trying to mentally feel like this is a Sunday of a PGA Tour event. It’s what you work for. It still does mean something.”
36-hole co-leader Blaine Hale Jr. shot a 3-under 69 and is currently 10-under and in solo second place. Trace Crowe and Spencer Levin are T3 at 8-under, and Raul Pereda and Hayden Springer are T5 at 7-under.
Trey Winstead moved up 65 spots to T13 after a 6-under 64.
Blake Elliot moved up 75 spots to T19 after a 6-under 64.
Thomas Power Horan moved up 85 spots to T24 after a 6-under 64.
Copper Dossey and Jeffrey Kang moved up 58 spots to T36 after a 4-under 66.
Marcus Byrd and Adam Long also moved into T36, shooting up 42 spots after recording rounds of 3-under 67.
Ryan Hall shot 4-under 66 to move up 55 spots into T54.
Due to current and impending weather, several notable names coming into the final stage have withdrawn. Austin Cook, Rhein Gibson, Fabian Gomez, Kelly Kraft, Kevin Chappell, Scott Piercy, and Mattias Schwab have all withdrawn through three rounds.View results for PGA TOUR Q-School
